Welcome to Disney Alaska! ~ Our first Disney endurance race (race day!)
Thought I'd start this before I forget it all. (Maybe I'll finally get around to do Disneyland TR too).
Day one, Thursday, January 7th. Dale (dh) was out delivering papers (at 4am) and his car died! We had to leave for the airport around 7:30 due to the heightened security and now had to deal with a non working vehicle. Thank goodness for a wonderful mechanic, two blocks from our house. Dale had the van towed there and fortunately our DS (Dale-Ross) was able to help him finish up the papers. He got home with just enough time to shower and get the car loaded.
We got on the road shortly after 7:30 when I realize I have NO gas whatsoever. First stop WAWA for gas; then D&D for coffee (and a breakfast sandwich for hubby who never did get to eat). Finally we are on our way to the airport. Thankfully we live so close to Philly that we were there in no time. Our ds, Tyler, had gone up with us, and would take our car home, as he was staying home to help with the 'babies'. We unloaded everything to check in at the curb with Southwest and get in line. Tyler leaves and I realize that I'm holding Dale's laptop (or so I thought). We are in line to check our bags and I don't have dh's laptop, I have a car repair kit (has flairs, fix a flat, jumper cables, etc) in the case! Well, I'm thinking I better just give it away to someone who is dropping off someone at the curb, lol. Dale figured we'll just throw it into one of our checked bags and maybe keep it in our Owners Locker. Good thought (or so we thought).
We get up to the security check point and what do we see???
Absolutely NO ONE in line at all! So much for allowing hours to get through security! We stood around finishing our coffee before heading in.
We had an uneventful flight to Orlando and were picking up our car by 2pm and on our way to the Boardwalk Villas.
Up next, getting a room you absolutely do not want!
